Where do I even start? Like the two of them, Erica & Nick's gorgeous Claremont, CA, wedding on Friday, April Fools' Day, was anything but ordinary. Erica & Nick met in acting class and have been together more than 10 years. Their deep connection with one another is palpable whenever they are in the same room.
They wanted their wedding to be an expression of who they are as a couple: unconventional, authentic, and FUN. As a actor, model & hard core yoga instructor (former lululemon athletica ambassador too!), Erica loves to break the rules. Wedding gown? Nah.... Short white dress with pockets. Veil?... Why? Flowers? Nah... DIY wire "bouquet" creations & pins instead of boutonnieres. Party favors? .... clown noses!! You get the picture.
Most couples follow tradition and spend the wedding day hiding from one another until their first look. Not Erica and Nick! They arrived to the venue together and spent the hours before the ceremony talking and sharing laughs before the guests arrived.
Thank you, Erica & Nick, for inviting me to document these images, and be part of your incredible wedding day!
